I know its been a while, but things are a bit quiet here in sunny Sao Paulo at the moment. Winter has set in – sometmes it barely gets to 20 degrees during the day – but we are just surviving.
Our initial six months in SP is almost up, but we are having so much fun in Brasil we have decided to extend for another year or two (but really anymore than a year is virtually forever right)!!
So we are going through the process of getting properly set up, finding a bigger apartment (with room for visitors), shipping all of our stuff over from england, buying a car, getting our portuguese up to scratch and getting Greg a real job.
Unfortunately all of this stuff (as well as Greg trying to get his book finished) means that theres not many adventures going on at the moment, so please bear with us..
The good news is that as we are staying longer, you now have another great reason to come and visit us in sunny Sao Paulo!!!
Also from November Qantas are going to start offering direct flights from Sydney to Buenos Aires – which is only three hours from Sao Paulo, aparently they offer cheap flights initially to get deman up – so start booking folks!
So watch this space, we will put up some information on our house hunting adventures as there is lots of people searching for information on setting up house in Sao Paulo. In the meantime i would suggest looking on http://www.gringoes.com/forum/default.asp where there is lots of good information on living in Brasil and Sao Paulo.
Hope all is well with you all!
